It’s all about the details

Stand out from the crowd with the Polo’s new impressive look.

More space for comfortable cruising

The Polo’s interior has been designed with you in mind. From the ergonomic cockpit to more headroom and legroom from the previous Polo, it’s truly a joy to drive this new hatch.

Stay relaxed in busy streets

The intelligent driver assistance systems in the Polo help you drive more comfortably.

Safety is our priority

The intelligent driver assistance systems in the Polo help you drive more comfortably. They also can help you deal with critical situations or even avoid them*. Even if you only notice this technology on rare occasions, it feels good to know that it is there.

Standard safety features include; front assist with city emergency braking, side assist (blind spot monitor) with rear traffic alert, and a reversing camera.

*Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility of the vehicle.

A moment of shock? Not in your Polo

The standard Front Assist with city emergency braking can warn you in the event of critical situations, support you with braking or even automatically apply the brake in an emergency.

Your Polo can look over your shoulder for you

The Blind Spot Monitor warns you about vehicles in your blind spot using an LED indicator in the exterior mirror. And if you still attempt to change lanes despite the warning, it starts to flash to attract more attention. The integrated Rear Traffic Alert warn you if any vehicles start to approach when you are reversing out of a parking space. If you fail to respond to its warning, the system can “prevent” a collision by applying the brake.

A forward-looking way to reverse

The “Rear View” camera enables you to keep an eye on your surroundings when reversing: the area behind the vehicle covered by the camera is displayed on the display of your Infotainment system. “Rear View” also superimposes guidelines onto the image, which can help you to judge the distance correctly.

Lots of traffic? Not a problem

Adaptive Cruise Control (Optional) lets you set the speed you want to travel and the gap you want to allow between you and the car in the front, making life easier on long journeys.

*Available as an option on R-Line and GTI.

Features & Design

The new Polo is modern and sporty with a fresh, clean style and dynamic line. It strikes the perfect balance between design and function.

Volkswagen’s signature “Tornado line” creates a clear contour that sweeps around this mighty hatch, arching over the front side panels, gliding along the standard four doors and curving around the rear. With a range of vibrant and youthful exterior colours for you to choose from, your new Polo has never looked so good!

  • 10.25 in TFT-LCD colour display

Use your apps in your Volkswagen as well

The apps from your phone in your car

Access your smartphone’s screen, selected apps, maps, and music through App-Connect on your car’s touchscreen. You can do this thanks to three innovative technologies: Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® interfaces. The App-Connect allows you to conveniently use selected apps and content right in your Volkswagen, that is easier than ever.


Open up Polo

No more routing around in your trousers, handbag or jacket pocket on the hunt for your car keys: As long as you have it with you and you are no more than 1.5 metres away from your Polo, you can unlock the doors and boot lid automatically, as if by magic. You also don’t need a key to start the engine. All it takes is the touch of a button. And if Keyless Access isn’t working, then it just means that your key isn’t in your pocket after all. Perhaps it’s on the kitchen table?

A pleasant climate for everyone

Is your fellow passenger complaining about being too warm? And you’re feeling too chilly? Or maybe it’s the other way round? With the two-zone temperature control, you can adjust the temperatures for the driver and passenger sides separately. And the climatic air conditioning system can do even more than that: the slower your speed, the quieter the fans. If you operate the windscreen cleaner or engage reverse gear, it automatically switches to air recirculation mode to keep any smells outside. In short: the climate is perfect on every journey in the Polo. Standard on R-Line and GTI.

Our seats: Gentle on the back and easy on the eye

A long journey in the Polo is almost more comfortable than an evening on the sofa thanks to its standard ergonomic seats. The lumbar support available as an option for the Comfortline and Highline equipment packages ensure an even higher level of comfort and extra support for your back. It relieves strain from your back, especially when your muscles can’t take any more on long journeys. The only drawback? You can’t transport it to your sofa once your journey has finished.

Spotlight on LED lighting

The LED headlights with static cornering lighting offer exceptional illumination of the road ahead when turning.

Standard on R-Line and GTI.

Uniquely Beats. The Polo Beats Edition

The sound specialists at Beats Electronic have worked to tune six loudspeakers and a subwoofer to optimise sound quality in the new Polo, so you can expect the same energetic and full sound you enjoy with Beats headphones.

The “Beats” package includes:

  • Door mirrors in contrasting paint colour.
  • Unique “Beats” exterior decals & special logo on B-pillar.
